About Us

Here at Freckle, our mission is to ensure that every student gets a world-class education. We believe that students do their best learning when teachers can reach them at their individual levels. Yet, most teachers are only provided with resources that teach to one specific level.

To overcome this, teachers work nights and weekends to find the perfect piece of content for each of their students. Then, during the day, they work with their classes in small groups so they can personalize their instruction as best they can. Teachers are doing this all on their own and they deserve our help! Thats why, at Freckle, were passionate about providing teachers with the resources and data they need to teach all of their students at the level thats best for them. As of today, we reach nearly 10 million students across 40% of American schools and, with your help, were excited to make an even larger impact.
